Carnegie Learning Leads The National Math Transition To The Common Core State Standards

PITTSBURGH, Aug. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Carnegie Learning is leading the K-12 mathematics transition to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) by unveiling a transition plan featuring new core and intervention curricula written and created specifically for alignment to the more rigorous academic requirements now adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia. These curricula meet the Standards for Mathematical Content, the Standards for Mathematical Practice, and 100% of the established CCSS defining what students should know and be able to do at each grade level.

The new Carnegie Learning® Math Series: Courses 1-3 is a middle school program developed as an entirely new product specifically aligned to the CCSS for Mathematics. Like Carnegie Learning's high school math courses, the new middle school Math Series is a blended program integrating textbooks; adaptive, personalized software; and, collaborative classroom instruction. Carnegie Learning ® Math Series: Courses 1-3 are available for implementation this fall.

Carnegie Learning's CCSS-aligned Algebra I is also revised to meet the new CCSS requirements and is available for immediate implementation. Also this year, Carnegie Learning offers a newly aligned Integrated Math I course weaving together numeric, algebraic, geometric, and statistical curricula for students in states committed to an integrated approach to math.  

Currently, 146 school districts in 34 states are set to implement the CCSS-aligned Carnegie Learning middle school Math Series, Algebra I, and Integrated Math I programs this coming 2012-2013 academic year.

Geometry, Algebra II, and Integrated Math II and III courses aligned to the Common Core State Standards are in development for release in Spring 2013 and 2014. Carnegie Learning will continue to revise and redefine all curricula each year as districts learn more about the standards and best practices, and as new assessment plans from the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers ( PARCC) and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium are released in 2014-2015.

"Carnegie Learning has a deep, substantial history of developing programs based upon cognitive research and ongoing data gathering and improvement, and we are continuing this commitment with our new CCSS-aligned math programs," said Dr. Steve Ritter, co-founder and chief scientist at Carnegie Learning, Inc. "These are not repurposed or re-sequenced programs with a few new units, but new content reflecting higher expectations that students will graduate from high school, succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing academic college courses or in workforce training programs." 

The National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers announced the new CCSS standards in 2010 to provide a consistent understanding of what K-12 students are expected to learn in English/Language Arts and Mathematics, with the goal of  addressing disparate standards across states, student mobility, global competition, and the changing skills required in the 21st century workplace.
